Adele has picked up three gongs at this year’s Brit Awards!
She won the prestigious Artist of the Year as well as Song of the Year for “Easy on Me” and Album of the Year for “30” and she’s dedicating that last honour to two important people in her life – her son, Angelo and Angelo’s dad, ex-husband Simon Konecki.
“Obviously, I’d like to thank everyone that I work with like the labels and stuff, ” she began.
“But I’d like to dedicate this award to my son, and to Simon, his dad.”
Adele explained that the album “30” was “all of our journey,” not just hers.
“I’m very proud of myself for sticking to my guns and putting out an album that was about something so personal to me,” she continued.
“My son has been so gracious and patient and kind over the past couple of years and it’s for him.”
In an earlier speech on the night, Adele had expressed her surprise at winning Artist of the Year – which, FYI, now that the Awards have gotten rid of gendered categories, means she beat all the boys too!
“I actually really wasn’t expecting this one at all,” she said, acknowledging her fellow brilliant nominees including Ed Sheeran, Dave, Little Simz and Sam Fender.
“Never lose sight of why you are who you are,” she powerfully added.
“The reason people are into you is because of something you have in you. Don’t ever let go of that, ever!”
The evenings other winners included Olivia Rodrigo for International Song of the Year, Billie Eilish for International Artist of the Year and Dua Lipa for Best Pop Act.
